If you can't help, I guess there is no one else who can?

Trying again anyway, since when I don't get answers from anywhere, I can't 
work on it freely, so I won't work on it at all and it perhaps won't ever get 
packaged for Debian. Vicious circle...

Is this thing (or any license in general, if that could be more easily 
answered) somehow mixable with the GPL? Eg. that I publish my derived work 
under the GPL and make an exception for Strategy First to grant them what 
they want?
